Misr University for Science and Technology
6th of October City, Egypt


University description (as per official university website)

Misr University for Science and Technology is a leading independent university in Egypt, it was established in 1996 by the late, Professor Souad Kafafi, an educationalist and philanthropist.

The institution offers good quality facilities, respected faculty members, and a well equipped setting for higher education.

University System

The university follows the credit hours system, in general, one credit hour is the equivalent of one lecture hour every week for one semester. Two or more laboratory hours may be counted as one credit hour. The academic year is divided into two semesters of 16 weeks each. The fall semester usually starts in the third week of September, and the spring semester starts in the third week of February. An eight-week summer session is also available after the second semester.

Graduation Requirements
To be awarded a degree, the student must complete all of their required courses with a passing grade and must earn a cumulative grade point average of 1.5 or better. These requirements must be completed within the period specified for each college, as follows :
1. College of Medicine: 254 credit hours + internship (one year).
2. College of Oral and Dental Surgery: 210 credit hours + internship (one year).
3. College of Physiotherapy: 190 credit hours + internship (one year).

Language of Instruction
English is the language of instruction in all colleges except for the Arabic branches of the colleges of Business, Archaeology and Mass Media.

Academic Advising
It is the university policy that each student is entitled to academic advising. In each specialization, the dean or department head concerned assigns academic advisors to provide students with pertinent information about their major, and to assist in planning their program of study, and in solving their academic problems.

Academic Load
The academic load for any student is between a minimum of 12 credit hours and a maximum of 18 credit hours (or the number of credits specified in the college study plan). However, the maximum load depends on the student's academic record. If the student's CGPA is less than 1.5 his load will be lowered until he is able to raise it to the accepted standard.

Credit Overload
Students with good academic standing who wish to register in more than the maximum number of credit hours per semester must seek the approval of their academic advisor and the college dean. In case of graduation or moving up to the clinical stage, a student may be allowed to register extra hours after getting the approval of the concerned authorities.

Class Attendance Regulations
Students should attend all classes for which they are registered to obtain maximum educational benefits. Absence or lateness does not excuse students from required course work. Students whose absence record exceeds 25% of course hours are not allowed to sit in for the final exam and will receive a "failing grade" (F) in that course.

Drop and Add Courses
During the first two weeks at the beginning of each semester, students are allowed to change their registration by adding or dropping courses after consulting their academic advisors—provided they do not exceed the maximum credits or fall bellow the minimum allowed.

Faculty of Medicine

The university has a well-equipped medical school which follows a traditional style curriculum with a strong pre-clinical/clinical divide, designed for school leavers. The faculty administration has taken the agenda to avoid problem-based-learning and a strong emphasis on sociology in favour of an emphasis on good science. Each course is taught and examined as its own discipline without the type of integration that has become widespread in other schools. The university has its own advanced teaching hospital, which is being expanded to include a cardio-thoracic surgery department. During the clinical stage of the course, medical students have rotations either in the teaching hospital or affiliate government hospitals in downtown Cairo. After successful completion of the 6 year degree, the student is awarded MB BCh (equivalent to the US title, M.D.) and they can proceed to begin an internship.
